Missouri river points and points in
Kansas and Nebraska, June 21, July 7,

special excursions to visit the many
points of interest in the Rocky Moun

rates for the round trip from Denver,
Colorado Springs and Pueblo to all
principal resorts and scenic points of
interest in Colorado and to Salt Lake
City and Ogden, Utah.
The Denver and Rio Grande Rail
road, with its numerous branches
penetrating the great state of Colo

tours through the mountains, one of
which in particular is the famous 1,000
mile tour, passing the following points
of interest: La Veta, Poncha Pass,
Toltec Gorge, Durango-Dolores Canon,
Ico, L—ard Head Pass or Las Ani

row gauge line climbing Marshall Pass
and winding through the Black Canon
of the Gunnison, returning over the
broad gauge through Glenwood

is most conveniently made by leaving
Denver, Colorado Springs or Pueblo
on the night train which arrives at Sa

continuing from there over Marshall

In the afternoon. Here close connec

this point travelers should at least
emain over night. When leaving
Glenwood Springs it is most desirable
to take a morning train, as this com

Philadelphia, June 22.-1—The text in
full of the republican national plat
form adopted at the convention is as
„.Tho republicans of the United States,
yhrough their chosen representatives, met
in national convention, looking back upon
an unsurpassed record of achievement
and looking forward Into a great field of
duty and opportunity and appealing to
the Judgment of their countrymen, make
these declarations:
The expectation In which the American
people, turning from the democratic par

republican chief magistrate and a repub

Whm the people then assembled at
the polls after a term of democratic legis
lation and administration business was
dead. Industry was paralysed and the na
tional credit disastrously impaired. The
country's capital was hidden away and Its
labor distressed end unemployed.
The democrats had no other plan with
which to Improve the ruinous conditions
which they had themselves produced than
to coin silver at the ratio of IS to 1. The
republican party, denouncing this plan as
sure to produce conditions even worse
than those from which relief was sought,
promised to restore prosperity by means
of two legislative measures—a protective
tariff and a law making gold the standard
of value.
The people, by great majorities, issued
to the republican party a commission to
enact these laws. This commission has
been executed, and the republican prom
ise is redeemed. Prosperity more general
and more abundant than we have ever
known has followed these enactments.
There Is no longer controversy as to the
value of any government obligations.
Every American dollar Is a gold dollar or
Its assured equivalent, and American
credit stands higher than that of any na
tion. Capital Is fully employed and every
where labor Is profitably occupied.
No single fact can more strikingly tell
the story of what republican government
means to the country than this—that
while during the whole period of 107 years
from 1790 to 1897 there was an excess ot

there has been in the short three years
of the present republican administration
an excess of exports over Imports in the
enormous sum of $1,483,637,094.
And while the American people, sus

have been achieving these splendid tri

they have conducted and in victory con
cluded a war for liberty and human
No thought of national aggrandizement
tarnished the high purpose with which
American standards were unfurled. It
was a war unsought and patiently re
sisted, but when it came the American
government was ready. Its fleets were

its forces on land and sea bore equal trib

and sailors and to the skill and fore

liam McKlnley. Its acts have been estab
lished in wisdom and patriotism, and at
home and abroad it has distinctly ele
vated and extended the Influence of the
American nation. Walking untried paths
and facing unforeseen responsibilities.
President McKlnley Iwt been in every
situation the true American patriot and
the upright statesman, clear in vision,
strong in Judgment, firm in action, al
ways inspiring, and deserving the confi
dence of his countrymen.
In asking the American people to In
dorse this republican record and to re
new their commission to the republican
party, we remind them of the fact that
the menace to their prosperity has al
ways resided In democratic principles,
and no less in the general Incapacity of
the democratic party to conduct public
The prime essential of business pros
perity Is public confidence in the
good sense of the government and
in Its ability to deal intelligently
with each new problem of ad
ministration and legislation. That confi
dence the democratic party has never
earned. It is hopelessly Inadequate and
the country's prosperity, when democrat
ic success at the polls Is announced, halts
and ceases In mere anticipation of demo
cratic blunders and failures.
We renew allegiance to the principle
of the gold standard and declare our con
fidence in the wisdom of the legislation
of the Fifty-sixth congress, by which the
parity of all our money and the stability
of our currency on a gold basis has been
We recognize that Interest rates are a
potent factor in production and business
activity, and for the purpose of further
equalizing and of further lowering the
rates of Interest, we favor such monetary
legislation as will enable the varying
needs of the season and of all sections
to be promptly met ip order that trade
may be evenly sustained, labor steadily
employed and commerce enlarged.
The volume of money In circulation was
never so great per capita as it is today.
We declare our steadfast opposition to
the free and unlimited coinage of sil
ver. No measure to that end could be
considered which was without the sup
port of the leading commercial countries
of the world.
However firmly republican legislation
may seem to have secured the country
against the peril of base and discredited
currency, the election of a democratic
president could not fall to impair the
countrys" credit and to bring once more
into question the intention of the Amer
ican people to maintain upon the gold
standard the parity of their money cir
culation. The democratic party must be
convinced that the American people will
never tolerate the Chicago platform.
We recognise the necessity and propri
ety of the honest co-operation of capital
to meet new business conditions and es
pecially to extend our rapidly Increasing
foreign trade, but we condemn all con
spiracies and combinations intended to
restrict business, to create monopolies
to limit production or to control prices,
and favor such legislation as will effectu
ally restrain and prevent all such abuses
protect and promote competition and se
cure the rights of producers, laborers
and all who are engaged in industry and
We renew our faith In the policy of
protection to American labor. In that
policy our Industries have been estab
lished, diversified and maintained. By
protecting the home market the compe
tition has been stimulated and produc
tion cheapened. Opportunity to the In
ventive genius of our people has been se
cured and wages in every department of
labor maintained at high rates higher
now than ever before, always distinguish
ing our working people In their better
conditions of life from those of any com
peting country. Enjoying the blessings
of American common schools, secure in
the right of self-government and protect
ed in the occupancy of their own mar
kets, their constantly Increasing knowl
edge and skill have enabled them finally
to enter the markets of the world.
We favor the associated policy of reci
procity, so directed as to open our mar
kets on favorable terms for what we do
not ourselves produce In return for free
foreign markets.
In the further Interest of American
workmen, we favor a more effective re
striction of the immigration of cheap la
bor from foreign lands, the extension of
opportunities of education for working
children, the raising of the age limit for
child labor, the protection of free labor
as against contract convict labor, and an
effective system of labor insurance
Our present dependence upon foreign
shipping for nine-tenths of our foreign
carrying is a great loss to the Industry
of this country. It is also a serious
rtaneer to our trade, for its sudden with
drawal In the event of European war
would seriously cripple our expanding
foreign commerce. The national defense
and naval efficiency of this country,
moreover, supply a compelling reason for
legislation wnicn will enable us to re
cover our former place among the trade
carrying fleets of the world.

President McKlnley has conducted the

Imposed upon us by The Hague treaty, of
non-intervention in European controver

that a way may soon be found, honorably
alike to both contending parties, to termi
nate the strife between them.
In accepting by the treaty of Paris the
Just responsibility of our victories In the
Spanish war, the president and senate
won the undoubted approval of the Amer
ican people. No other course was possi
ble than to destroy Spains' sovereignty
throughout the West Indies and in the
Philippine islands.. That course created
our responsibility before the, world and
with the unorganised population whom
our intervention had freed from Spain, to
provide for the maintenance of law and
order, and for the establishment of good
government and for the performance of
International obligations.
Our authority could not be less than
our responsibility, and wherever sover

high duty of the government to maintain
Its authority, to put down armed Insur

liberty and civilization upon all the res
cued peoples. The largest measure of
self-government consistent with their
welfare and our duties shall be secured
to them by law.

What He Found in Western
Canada to Induce Him
to Settle There,
Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., Feb. 20th, 1900.
To Whom it May Concern:—Especi
ally to those who are desirous of ob
taining health and wealth for them
selves and families, I wish to state a
few facts in regard to the Canadian
North-west, where I went, leaving
Sauit Ste. Marie on May 2ud, 1899, for
the purpose of seeking a better home
for mj family in the future. I got a
special rate ticket for Ft. McLeod, Al
berta. Through Manitoba and part ot
the farmers were busy em­
ployed ploughing and seeding. I
found the farmers very kind and
friendly, willing to t&lfc and assist in
giving me the particulars of the coun
try. At McLeod I spent a few days
looking over some ranchers' stock,
which I was surprised to see looking
so well they were in better condition
than any stock I ever saw in Michigan,
even those that had been stabled, and
most of these had never seen the in
side of a shed or received any feed from
the hands of man. But as I was also
looking for mixed farm land I found
McLeod no place for me, it is only fit
for ranching purposes.
Retracing my way back to Winni
peg, I stopped off at Lethbridge, where
I found some of the greatest horse
ranches I ever had the pleasure of
looking at. It is a fine level country,
and lots of water and good grazing.
At Medicine Hat, which is located in a
valley, there were lots of sheep, cattle
and horses in the surrounding country
and all looking well.
On July 14th I went to Regina, there
I began to see mixed farming lands in
abundance, and the crops looking re
markably well, and as long as daylight
lasted I saw the same all along the
line and on the 15th day of July I ar
rived in Winnipeg, just in time for
the exhibition. There I met with one
of the most beautiful pictures of the
world's records', for as soon as I en
tered the grounds my eyes met with
all kinds of machinery, all in motion,
and the cattle, grain and produce of
the country was far beyond my expec
tation, in fact it was beyond any in
dustrial exhibition or agricultural fair
I ever visited and I have seen a good
From Regina to Prince Albert, a dis
tance of 250 miles, it is all good for
mixed farming, and well settled, with
some thriving little towns. In some
places the grain, just coming into
head, would take a man to the waist,

Prince Albert is a flourishing little
place, situated on the north Sas
katchewan river, having a population
of about 1,800, with good street and
sidewalks and churches of nearly
every denomination, three school
houses, and another one to be built at
once, also a brewery and a creamery.
Here I stayed for about four months,
working at my trade of bricklaying,
and met with farmers and ranchers
with whom I made it my special busi
ness to talk in regard to the prospects.
I also visited several farmers for some
distance out in the country while crops
were in full bloom, and I may say that
I never saw better crops in all my
travels than I saw along the valley to
wards Stoney Creek and Carrot River.
In the market garden there is grown
currants, both red and black, and as
fine a sample of roots and vegetables
as ever went on a market. The soil in
and around this district cannot be
beaten for anything you may wish to
grow, and besides the season is long,
giving time for everything to mature.
The cattle were looking as good as I
saw anywhere, good pasture and hay
land, and plenty of water wherever
you go. The country is dotted all
around like islands with timber fit for
fuel and building purposes and within
a day's walk of lumbering woods,
where lumbering and tie making is
carried on in winter. Both large and
small game is plentiful.. There are
